Over 27,000 sit secondary school leaving exams


More than 27,000 candidates have today begun this year’s secondary school leaving examinations across the country.

The examinations were initially planned for December 2 but the ministry of education pushed it for December 16 after it failed to complete preparing the materials on time.

A total of 27,145 candidates are writing the examinations at 261 centers in 30 states and Abyei administrative area.  However, two states-Latjor and Maiwut did not present any candidate.

Deng Deng Hoc, the Minister of General Education and Instructions said there are 1,914 candidates sitting in nine centers in the internally displaced peoples camps.
